There are Several guilds on Earthfury using Third party applications to prevent other players of both factions from continuing on in the Scepter of the Shifting Sands Questline. This has completely halted any quest progress for those guilds that are not part of this Monopoly.
The guilds participating in this monopoly believe that they won’t be punished. Several of my own guild mates have video evidence of their collusion. For example, Mind Controlling members of the opposite faction while they are currently engaged in pvp combat. The Mind Controlled individual is then fully healed by members of the opposite faction before being released from their MC to finish off their opponent.
Please in-form of us that you are aware of the situation.
